Four changes for Southend United against Morecambe
BLUES boss Phil Brown has made four changes to his starting line-up for this afternoon’s clash against Morecambe at Roots Hall.
Mark Phillips has returned at the heart of the back four after recovering from a groin injury and comes in for Adam Thompson who is away with Northern Ireland’s under 21 team.
In midfield, Kevan Hurst and Michael Timlin have both been handed their first starts of the season after recovering from injuries, meaning both Will Atkinson and Conor Clifford drop down to the bench.
Barry Corr has also been selected among the substitutes with the on loan Cauley Woodrow being handed his debut in attack alongside the in-form Freddy Eastwood.
Southend United: Bentley, White, Phillips, Prosser, Coker, Hurst, Leonard, Timlin, Straker, Woodrow, Eastwood
Subs: Smith, Reid, Corr, Atkinson, Clifford, Payne & Auger
